Tonka United Soccer Association

Overview

U15-19 players at Tonka United can participate in three different competitive soccer programs: the Elite program, the Academy program, or the Select program. Placement in these programs is based on a player assessment that takes place each July/August.

Our goal is to give our families and players a great soccer experience by placing players at suitable levels for success. All of our competitive programs focus on teaching players how to compete, play together and solve problems - with an emphasis on creating skilled soccer players through the mastery of technique and decision-making. 



Registration & Player Assessments

When you first register for the player assessments, you will pay a $50 non-refundable assessment free (whether or not you attend). This fee is figured into the overall registration fees and is not an additional fee.

After assessments you will receive an email with your team placement. You will have 48 hours to accept your spot on the team. To accept, you will click ACCEPT and complete registration. You will have the option of paying in installments or in full. Once you have completed a payment, you are considered registered with Tonka United. If you want to decline your team placement, then you will initially click ACCEPT and then NO.
